I booked a hotel which was in very close proximity to the Dubai Mall as I intended on visiting the Mall often throughout my trip.
The first time you walk into the Mall it's kind of overwhelming! The walkway leading to the main entrance is so exciting for car enthusiasts as there is a long line up of super cars parked from Lambos to Rolls Royces!
Inside the Mall you can pretty much find any type of shop you are looking for! The downside is that it can take you quite some time to find a shop you want to visit.
Some aspects which I really liked were:
The Food Court - such a vast amount of cuisines to choose from.
The Ice Rink - although I didn't use this, it's just crazy to see a full blown ice rink inside a mall!
The Water Fountain feature - a fantastic large display which makes for great photo opportunities.
The Aquarium - such a large aquarium on display for shoppers to view. I didn't actually go inside but the outside alone was amazing!
The Dinosaur Display - a great feature to see a full scale dinosaur on display
On a negative note, I didn't like the fact that there is hardly any seating areas available to take a rest. For a mall which is the size of a postcode, it's so tiring to walk around that you just want to have a rest from time to time. However, I've been informed that the reason why there is not much seating is because you are expected to keep moving. A bit unfair on people like the elderly!
Overall, I loved this place as there was so much to do inside..... I still can't get over how big it is! I thought Westfield in London was big but that just doesn't come anywhere near to the size of Dubai Mall!!
